Oral contraceptives, or birth control, can be a very tedious and annoying for women. Pills must be taken daily and can be easily forgotten.
With the development of NuvaRing, we were promised a better way to protect ourselves in a much easier way. The device is implanted vaginally and used only once a month. But it’s come with a lot of issues.
NuvaRing has gotten bad reports ever since its introduction into the market in 2001. But since that is relatively new for a birth control, there haven’t been enough studies to addressing its safety and success. Some studies show that NuvaRing users are two times more likely to develop blood clots than those using normal oral contraceptives. Patients also suffer pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, strokes, and heart attacks. Women can also suffer high blood pressure, gallbladder disease, and cancer of the reproductive organs or breasts. Possible signs of one of the more serious problems include sharp chest pain, coughing blood, breast lumps, and severe headaches or pain. Side effects should be immediately evaluated by a doctor because complications can cause serious injuries and be life-threatening. Watch the video now to learn more.
